Master of Education programs in French

SFU's Faculty of Education offers master's degree programs in education focused on research and professional practice for working individuals. This is a unique opportunity in Canada to explore the themes of diversity, inclusion and plurilingualism with a setting of French language education in a minority context.

These programs are offered online, face-to-face or in a hybrid format (specific to MEd EP) and bring you into a learning community with a wealth of differing professional perspectives.

Undertaking graduate studies at SFU is a springboard to high-level knowledge, a renewal in one's career and the opening of new career prospects, not to mention, in most cases, a higher remuneration.

Our graduates bring their acquired expertise and leadership to the various teaching and administrative teams of French language programs throughout BC and beyond.

Consortium of Western Canadian Universities

SFU and three other universities in Western Canada formed a Consortium to put their resources in common to offer students more access to Master programs in French and to a wider selection of courses.

For SFU students in the Master's programs, the Consortium gives them access to courses and specializations that are not available at SFU. These courses are optional and additional.
